4 stars Very soft,atmospheric, mainly acoustic jazz album by Pat Metheny. In fact ( as in case with Chick Corea's "Return To Forever" album) there is first album of future Pat Metheny Group.

Sound is relaxed, with characteristic to German ECM Records company sound. Pieces are nice, pleasant, with light touch of country sounding guitar. Music in fact are more jazz than fusion. For sure, that album build the strong basis for future Metheny career, particularly in Europe.

Don't expect energy or experiments there. As many Metheny albums, this music is more downtempo atmospheric soundscapes, pleasant to ear and jazzy enough to be listened with pleasure ( or far enough from "new age" sound).

I can recommend this album to all soft jazz lovers, as well as everyone who likes ECM sound in jazz recordings. Pat Metheny demonstrates high standard in his guitar playing there, some weak points could be just playing on the edge with pop-jazz in rare moments.
